Locally designed in downtown Calgary, 6streets is a men’s streetwear brand that proves that comfort can still be stylish and that even simple items can have a story. Case in point is the company’s York Crewneck ($100). The soft, marled-fleece pullover is adorned with a single tiny white rose – a reference to England’s historic War of the Roses between the House of Lancaster, which was represented by a red rose, and the House of York, represented by a white rose. The cozy pullover is perfect for transitioning into those chilly autumn evenings.
